seven am in moscow. good to have you with us here on r t our top story turkey launched a fresh artillery strike on syria in response to another mortar attack from across the border started its shelling wednesday in retaliation for a syrian mortar round that killed five turkish civilians our middle east correspondent paula sleeper has more. we do know that the mortar bomb landed in the countryside in turkish that territory so it is possible that no one in fact was injured or killed we also have no word on who was responsible for the later mortar from syria what i can tell you though is that almost immediately turkey responded and went on the offensive meaning that we had the situation along the turkish syrian border intensifying it's not a back on wednesday when a mortar bomb fired from syria killed five turkish citizens and since then the situation has nearly escalated we're hearing from the turkish prime minister that he does not want a situation of war but he has warned the syrians not to make
11:02 pm
a fatal mistake and that is a quote from him and taste his resolve the syrians for their side has apologized for those what is interesting is that you need to realize that these waters that are being fired from syria into turkey all close range missiles now they are coming from territory that is controlled by the syrian rebels so this is why many are suggesting that perhaps they are being fired on purpose they're being fired to provoke the situation and create a false flag operation now the reasoning behind this could be that turkey for some time has been calling for a no fly zone it might be provoked into calling for foreign intervention and for nato to get involved in fact we've heard some rebel leaders in exile call for this although the majority of exiles in the majority of syrians are against this but the situation intensifying on the ground and everyone concerned that we could see this border tension is collating to some kind of regional conflict the battle certainly is intensifying the latest there's

a video that has now been released by the syrian rebels we have no confirmation as to be or a patient of the video but in it it does claim that the rebels will start executing forty eight muslims from iran if damascus does not meet the demands of the syrian rebels now there has been dialogue and some kind of negotiations. wow between the syrian government and believing in government at the same time just outside damascus the rebels have shot down a syrian helicopter gunship but this comes as shelling continues between both sides in several cities of onto the country russia has come to the fore in the media a treaty role it has said that it hopes the united nations envoy to syria will be coming to moscow perhaps the later this month and may to they hope that both sides will explain its course and moscow also saying that these cross border incidents are completely unacceptable after turkey's parliament authorized troops to launch
11:04 pm
cross border operations against syria the country's prime minister warned augur a wal-mart show away from war of provoked journalist and author often retards he thinks damascus will retaliate if pulled into a bigger conflict. this kind of flashpoint is the kind of flashpoint that can create world war three. some people have it this is a false flag operation we're getting these reports this continued as it were a reaction from the jets government ok so everyone will base political problems at home but then why were they speaking with the iranians talking about how this needs a diplomatic solution not a military one if turkey continued under the agreement. this would draw in a way to situation a wider vs your old war and risks expanding it to be below syria and the people of turkey will not benefit from this nato says that they'll defend any major member if you continue like this syria might see itself getting increasingly desperate and
11:05 pm
that retaliate with full force then it's up to the united states. britain and europe behind nato allies to figure out what to do what we need urgently right now is a peace conference certainly it's up to china and russia because they're the only people stopping a full scale war the kind of war that will only help but fall. says it looks like such as united states is again supporting. drug use to do on should know much better than to try and help out god he's been doing his best to fight the forces of his residence the republic of venice could be planning a glorious comeback supporters of venetian independence from italy are demanding the region go it alone tired they say of being saddled with rome's austerity so latest in a number of european regions pardon me european regions considering independence including scotland in the u.k. catalonia in spain professor load of eco pits sati who separatist party organized

a young lawyer and staunch critic of the government is predicted to give him a run for his money at the polls or he's losing cuffing of his more from caracas. the stakes could not be higher as venezuelans take to the polls to determine who will leave their country for the next six years at one end its president incumbent president hugo chavez. as it was represented a radical change for venezuela and the region as a whole under his so-called twenty first century socialism policies what this has meant is the nationalization of certain industries as well as the use of venezuela's revenues from oil exports to really focus attention on some of the more seconds of the population here this has meant policies that have improved health care education given the poor access to housing things that have really earned who has a massive massive popular support at the same time venezuela is plagued with a high crime rate one of the highest in the world as well as corruption and these are just some of the issues that have been seized on by the opposition candidate and the previous he's a forty year old very wealthy businessman who has energized the population has also

criticised the country's economic policies now and he's also promised to improve relations with the west now critics say and fear although this is something that could be this in the eyes that he would really represent a radical shift for the country in the sense that he could impose austerity programs and possibly roll back some of those popular economic social justice missions that hugo chavez has put into place this is something that has really concerned people and has raised a lot of questions about the future of this country for the issue of electoral fraud is always a concern there are some nineteen million of registered voters who will be taking to the polls throughout the day now what's interesting to us is people that we've spoken to on the street both supporters and opponents of president hugo chavez have said that electoral fraud on election day isn't really something they're concerned with that venezuela has one of the most developed systems of voting in the world it's an electronic system where people vote with their thumbs the results get sent to a central headquarters and are tabulated right away electronically and in fact president
11:20 pm
hugo chavez found this issue to be so important that he decided to host a surprise press conference just hours before the polls opened now again the last time venezuelans took to the polls to vote for their president was six years ago there is massive excitement here both candidates have called on supporters to come to the streets early even hours before the polls opened. it's a very festive mood people are very excited about this opportunity to really have a strong say about which direction they want their country and the region to go on americans will also add to the polls next month to decide whether to keep barack obama as their president or switch to mitt romney but while some critics say the u.s. electoral system fails to give citizens a real choice many voters themselves seem to be growing bored of the ballot our very own resident to new york has more. the two thousand and twelve presidential elections why are they so boring this week let's talk about that. so tired of all of it you know i mean it's almost like it's
11:21 pm
more than twenty four hours a day coverage on everything you know no matter what happens and nothing happened exactly having said that i think obama is going to win do you think he believes in himself as much as he did four years ago because he seems kind of tired he seems like he's a little frustrated i think he's more tired of me. just all of this like he just wants to get it over to november and just like ok give me you know let me win with the first african-american president so exciting no it's boring me i don't know if there's going to be as much of a turnout for voters this year are you going to vote. we're talking about the election you know. i'm not american you guys don't let me. yeah we don't we don't want a lot of americans vote too apparently why do you want to run don't you think either candidate can get it done i think there's too much corruption in the government and the bush kerry kerry yeah i was just like like which one do i like the least ok
11:22 pm
i'll use the other for the other one yeah yeah so it's kind of the same thing as two thousand and four that maybe it's just like one of those here like they just wants to be to get it over with and they just want to hear more details on plans get it over. and get on with a dumb thing right saying yeah good they do this thing that i'm not that smart. they're the smart ones with all the millions of dollars do you think they get put on a better salary. and whether or not you think this election is boring the bottom line is we only have about a month until it's finally over and we can all gladly move on. take a look now at some other stories making global headlines israel shot down a droll over the country's southern desert unclear who launched the aircraft but suspicion is falling on the lebanese militant group hezbollah israeli officials
